Business should seize the opportunities that climate change offers rather than rely on governments to solve the issues. David Hobbs examines the quandaries companies face.
Featuring commentary from:
Karina Litvack, Non-executive Director, Eni Spa: "We, in the boardroom, have a tremendous opportunity to play a constructive role and shape the environment in which we operate."
Andrew Minton, Managing Director, Criticaleye: "Governments can lay down rules and investors can create pressure, but businesses need to take the lead."
Julie Baddeley, Senior Independent Director, Marshall Group: "All Board members need to recognise this is as mainstream as risk management, balance sheet testing, capital projects or strategy."
Jane Griffiths, Non-executive Director, Johnson Matthey: "If you worry about climate change in your personal life, you should worry about it at work. You’re not a different person when you get into the boardroom."
Michael Lewis, CEO, E.ON.UK: "We are talking about transforming the status quo – changing how people live, work and move. To achieve that, industries and governments need to work together."
